Our entire body is connected by an intricate network of nerves and blood vessels that the body uses to communicate; damage via spinal misalignment and muscle tightness affects these communications causing symptoms such as numbness, pins and needles and tingling in the affected areas. These symptoms are a natural alarm that something has gone wrong and in some cases with prolonged communication interruptions, these symptoms can turn to pain and become long lasting.

When a nerve is being irritated or compressed, then the normal flow of nerve impulses will be affected; your family osteopath is trained to recognise these patterns of behaviour so that the exact cause of the problem can be pin pointed and treated effectively.
